In 1940, Howard (Howie) moved to BC to begin work as a logger. Howard served his country as an aircraft mechanic during WWII. Living in Harrison Mills, Howard was an involved member of his community. He was always quick to assist others and was the quintessential handyman. Howard enjoyed spending time with friends and family, floor curling, and telling stories about his youth.

Howard was loved by many and will be remembered for his kind and generous spirit. He was grateful to spend his final years with the wonderful people at Harrison Pointe in Langley.
